Positioned on a hill just off of the highway, 2 miles out of town. Casino included. Nice pool area. Modern hotel with big rooms. Head back to Ponce in a car for things to do. The main photo is not of the hotel

For a Holiday Inn... The room was clean and average standard size for 2 full beds. The hotel overall looks a bit dated in décor but the staff does a great job in maintaining the facilities in good conditions. You can also see they are improving it little by little (ex.: replacing the sliding doors to the balconies with new...

When it comes to hotels, there is not much selection in Ponce. This is the third hotel in Ponce we stayed at during a two week trip to PR. Honestly, I did not expect much from this place. The property is older and situated about four miles from the center of Ponce. However, I was surprised, if not astonished, at...

OK - the positive. The front desk staff are lovely. Unfortunately this property is in great need of renovation. Our first room would have been lovely except with the windows closed there was a howling screech. If you opened them, it ceased. In the end we opened them and had the air conditioning running. Not very satisfactory. We were moved...

Sadly I have to say, this is a cheap motel room. Bathroom was terrible, bed mattress was really old. Bedroom was stinky. Should close down for renovation. Restaurant food was as good as Kentucky fried chicken
